in thread File lock demo

This reminds me of a long battle I had with The Damian, where he finally acknowledged he made a boo boo in Perl Best Practices, due to his lack of knowledge of differences in behaviour of Perl's unlink function between Unix and Windows:

I'm pretty sure that's the only argument I ever won against him. :)

    For the records, no battle here. Davido only mentioned this after being asked, that was not part of any slides. :)

    > he made a boo boo

    FWIW I always thought that documentation should have a test suite too.

    At least the perldocs.
